AGENDA

You know what’s wrong with most conferences? They don’t really get to grips with the subject, the sponsors take over, and nowhere near enough of them take place in a crypt. The DEADx TALKS has been proudly punching a hole in that problem since 2015, and we’re happy to be back at The Crypt On The Green in fashionable London once again this November. Our subject this year is – take a deep breath – value.

With all that in mind, we’re bringing together a range of speakers and panellists including fintech gurus, political experts, asset managers, advisers, robos and platforms to explore what it all means and where it will take us. Mixed up in there will be some Brexit nonsense, and the lang cat will also share our most recent research on the state of the adviser nation.

We have done bits and bobs throughout the year to raise funds and completed our biggest challenge on September 28 with a 20 mile team walk from the Samaritans branch in Dunfermline all the way to lang cat HQ in sunny Leith.

Thanks to the many generous donations we raised over £17,000 in sponsorship which will fund the running of the Edinburgh Samaritans branch for three months. 

It was a fantastic experience doing the walk as a team and we are all looking forward to more challenges next year.
